"My first conviction is Advaita.

My sole refuge is the Divine Mother.

My only sadhana is Prayer and constant Remembrance.


Yoga (except for the Yama and Niyama) and Vichara (enquiry)

do not attract me. I revere them from a distance.

The Divine Mother gives me all the knowledge

necessary at any moment."

"Never do Advaita in action, only in Bhava!"

"I remember the Mother since recently as all Consciousness

- Pure, but Compassionate,

but I do Japa and Chandi Matra of Guru Dev."


"My only hope is Grace - My only sadhana - Prayer

As you think, so the result.

If you think "Effort" - you have to work hard.

If you think "Grace" - you have only to await It and pray."


"From my 10th. year I did Sri Vidya Mantras. till today I worship the Supreme Consciousness as Mother. Sometimes with Form and sometimes as NiraKara Nirguna  as the mood comes.

SHE IS ALL AND I AM HERS ALONE."


"By observing the "I", clinging to it, dogging its footsteps,

following it to it's hidout - the source to which it runs,

the Sadhaks have transformed a beautiful

STORY OF ROMANCE OF THE SOUL INTO A DETECTIVE FICTION.

SHERLOCK HOLMES AGAIN!"

"REMEMBER GOD, NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!"

     The following words are from handwritten notes by Swamiji

during his time of intense sadhana at Sri Ramana Maharshi Ashram.

During this time Swamiji was in his 8o's. Then, and even to the day

he left this world, his life and teaching shown forth that he was and is

Awake in the Presence of his Divine Mother.
